Rose of Sharon Update
Well, not much to report so far. I'm 3 days in to the project and I'm making pretty good progress, I guess. I'm glad I started this one. I am waiting for Magic Cloth to arrive in the mail, and I thought it would have arrived this week, but so far, nothing. And to be honest, I'm not in a hurry. I'm thoroughly enjoying stitching her.
I am fighting a tight shoulder which usually leads to migraines, so I'm pulling out all the stops from popping anti-inflamatories to applying the heating pad to my shoulder so I can stitch. Because, lets face it, only a migraine can really stop me!
But I do have to say, after a project which was almost entirely confetti stitches, this one is a real pleasure to do! Lots and lots of blocks of solid color. I am in heaven!
As mentioned before, I'm doing the dress in periwinkle with a yellow sash. I'll see how the conversion goes and if it seems to work, I will post the conversion with the final photo. That way if anyone wants to try it for themselves, they will have the colors to use.
I love seeing conversions! If you have any conversions that you have done, please respond with the link, I'd love to check out yours!
I won't be able to work much on this for the next few nights, as I will be on night shift, but hopefully I will be able to put in some serious hours next week.
Hopefully I will have an update for you then.
